Central Arizona College is partnering with local cities and American Medical Response for fire and ambulance services for its Signal Peak Campus after a five-year contract between the college and Regional Fire & Rescue ended in December.
The college put out a request for bids for a new fire and emergency medical services contract during the fall of 2019, said Angela Askey, executive director of Public Relations and Marketing for CAC. The college is required to go out for bid every time a service contract expires, she said.
Regional Fire, which is the closest fire department to the Signal Peak Campus, was the only entity to submit a bid for the contract. But on Jan. 7, Regional contacted CAC to withdraw the proposal, Askey said.
